Yeah I would like to know to. My husband is going through radiation and chemo treatments. He has had 2 treatments of radiation so far. And is doing ok. he has 30 treatments of radiation and chemo once a week or a high dose every 3 weeks. I am scared. I lost my brother to cancer 3 years ago. and this brings back that. I love my husband and it's killing me to see him going through this. I am not trying to scare anyone if I have I do apoligize. Just trying to get support and hope.
thank you :-)

..my route was operation then chemo, after session 4 it appears theNSCLC has been blown away. as my blood's still shot to pieces despitetransfusions we're considering wait and see now, i really would like abreak from being used as a dartboard..
..lifechanges, s'a pain but true, by session 2 i was getting the worksafter each heavy first round of the 3 week cycle, i think theworst was losing my nearly waist length dreds, and no beard ? whois that person in the mirror ? or maybe it's the weakness, so longwithout decent exercise ? then again it might be the stress of ofre-arranging my life to cope with a a possible quick exit ? but it justmight be that so many people in the hospital know me ?..
..allyou can do is accept the new normal, and in my case, do something aboutmy favourite horse who's put on a lot of weight these past months..
